According to a press release, the session is being jointly presented by Tim Ball, executive vice president of marketing and sales for Tredit Tire, and Walter Cannon, executive director of the Recreation Vehicle Safety Education Foundation (RVSEF). It will cover tire considerations for consumers such as type, size, load rating and range, PSI, tire age, and getting the proper information to the customer. The presentation will also examine what tires are currently being used in the RV industry and what are the most common tire failures and causes.
Engineers, purchasing agents and RV design staff and their related suppliers are encouraged to participate for the webinar.
“The webinar is going to cover tire usage for all types of RVs, from folding camping trailers to type A motorhomes and touch on a wide range of issues relating to what an RV manufacturer should request from a tire supplier,” said Bruce Hopkins, RVIA’s vice president of standards. “This is going to be a very valuable discussion among our members and two industry tire experts that will provide safety guidance as well as help all of us gain a better understanding of how to better handle tire issues and requirements.”
